So, apparently the baby has been upgraded from raspberry to green olive sized – miraculously doubling in a week! If the increased morning sickness is anything to go by then I’d say thats about right.

Steph (at work) has offered to host a baby shower for us which is really lovely. She’s already planning menus and is terribly excited. I’ve asked her that it take place in March/April when Lauren and Caroline are over here.

Getting really excited now about the obstetrician’s appointment next week, I can’t wait to see the ultrasound and hopefully hear the heartbeat!


Well, I’m pleased to say that I had the ‘chat’ with my manager today and all went well. As it turns out, she actually knew already! Apparently, our bodyguard of a month ago actually put it in his report – surely the guy would have known that at 5 weeks pregnant I hadn’t yet told work – sigh. Anyway, it turns out the entire management team have known for a month but were waiting for me to come out and say it. Apparently no hard feelings. Everyone is, as usual, being really supportive and is terribly happy for us both. I really am so fortunate to work in such an amazing environment!

It is pretty funny how people react when they find out you’re pregnant. Steph, a girl I work with and thankfully am good friends with, asked if she could feel my stomach today. I had to politely decline on grounds that it’s all just bloating rather than baby at the moment and recommended she wait a few months until there is something there too feel! Another woman thought it was ok to shout over the divide between the desks to ask what hospital I had chosen and who my gyno is!!! Not exactly general office conversation. Never-the-less I am over the moon to be pregnant and look forward to many more inappropriate questions and unsolicited gropings.

Ok, so I’ve been putting this off for a while now but its time to put pen to paper (?) and get blogging. I have absolutely no idea what I am doing but I’ve had a little pep-talk with my very helpful sister-in-law so here goes! Oh and I haven’t figured out how to make it all pretty yet but I’m working on it.

Welcome to the Ravelje Family blog, a way for our friends and family to keep up with the minute-by-minute changes that seem to be happening under our roof (or rather in my body) these days. Granted, they are probably only real for me so far but trust me they’re happening! I’ve been introduced to the joys of early morning/afternoon/evening queasiness &  sudden, uncontrollable hunger – not really a great combination…

Next challenge: letting the boss know that we’re going to have BabyRav – will let you know how that goes soon.

Next milestone: first Obstetrician’s appointment & early ultrasound – 26th November 2009 – can’t wait!!
